Loneliness is a taboo subject. In fact, most of us would rather admit to having an affair or carrying too much credit card debt than to admit that we are feeling lonely. I'm not sure why this is. Perhaps we see loneliness as a personal failing.
God makes a home for the lonely. It is a place where he can work in us; it is a place that can be very beneficial to us. It is not a place to avoid for you are not ever alone. God will never forsake you, but he will transform you.
Loneliness weakens the immune system, increases sensitivity to physical pain, and creates depression and fatigue. Moreover, it can generate inflammation throughout the body, leading to a range of health risks.
